Our new island is big, beautiful and so functional! I love it! I kept our old, smaller island and built off of it and the new size is fantastic.

I finished up our little basement kitchenette with a simple project that I put off for months! My no spend month is cruising along and I'm getting a ton done! :)

I'm so excited to share this tutorial! I may be the last one to figure this out but this is the easiest way I've found to transfer images and words to just about any surface. Perfect for beautiful images on chalkboards too!

I love the drawers! They add more trim which makes for more interesting design while still providing storage! Also like the outlet installed in the base of the trim...very handy!

My mantra this time of year -- it really helps when I'm overwhelmed by all of the STUFF in our house! I organized our little storage room and repeated this to myself the whole time. More on that space on the blog:

It feels so good to get all the "extra" out of our house!

I often see things that I love and know I can make them on my own for cheaper…but I don't always save $140 by doing it on my own like I did with this Pottery Barn advent knock off! :) See how I did it on the blog today:
 
http://www.thriftydecorchick.blogspot.com/2014/11/knock-off-pottery-barn-advent.html

I just LOVE it!
